Giorgos Giakoumakis Sidelined Due To A Non-Contact Injury!

Giorgos Giakoumakis plays football for the Scottish club Celtic and the Greek national team. He comes from a generation that over the years has produced a large number of football players and is currently going strong. Despite switching clubs several times over the previous few years, his career is still doing quite well.

Heraklion, Crete, a small village on a Greek island, is where he was born on December 9th, 1994. Three generations of football players in his family line have left their imprint, just like Giorgos is doing now.

In the 2011–12 season, he made his professional football debut with Greek team Atsalenios. Before electing to go to Platanias, where he had greater playing time, he didn’t remain long with Atsalenios. In the Greece Football League match against Skoda Xanthi, a 3-2 victory, he played his first game off the bench.

The renowned player has always been in spotlight, however, during a match this Sunday, he suffered a non-contact injury. In the forthcoming paragraphs we have detailed all the information there is to know about his injury.

How Did Giorgos Giakoumakis Suffered The Injury?

Giorgos Giakoumakis, a striker for Atlanta United, missed the first half of Sunday’s MLS victory over Philadelphia because of a non-contact injury. He pulled up while attempting to run underneath a pass near the goal and looked like he was reaching for his right hamstring.

After the game, manager Gonzalo Pineda explained that Giakoumakis’ hamstring was hurt. A medical scan is anticipated to take place either late Sunday night or early Monday morning.

Joe Patrick posted a tweet which confirms the injury of Giorgos Giakoumakis. 

Giakoumakis stood with his head in his hands after getting hurt for a while before squatting down on the ground. He acknowledged the crowd as he gently departed the field. In the 30th minute, with Atlanta United leading 1-0, he was replaced by Miguel Berry.

After the game, Giakoumakis was spotted in the locker room. Although he did not have a pronounced limp, he did seem agitated.

With 10 goals, the Greek striker leads Atlanta United in goals scored. With 0.97 goals per 90, he leads the MLS. He just joined Thiago Almada as representatives of the Five Stripes by being named an MLS All-Star.

This season’s injury is not Giakoumakis’ first. In April, he missed two games due to hamstring tightness in consecutive games. Once he came back, he instantly got back to his old self, scoring in just his second appearance off the bench. Within the next 10 days, Atlanta United will travel to play two away games at Montreal and New England. On July 19, the All-Star game will take place in Washington, D.C.
